An out-of-town friend came by my house last night and surprised me with these! Aren’t they gorgeous?
I was so touched by this kind gesture.
I hope that as 2013 begins we are all motivated to do little random acts of kindness for others. It can be as small as wishing someone a good day, listening to someone if they need to vent (NOTE: I said listening…sometimes, all that’s needed is just for someone to be heard), paying someone a compliment, even smiling at someone! At church this morning I complimented Sister L on her hair and how nice it looked. (Sister L has known me since birth – and she’s one of the kindest women in the world. She’s a widow and one of the old-timers [been in the ward for a long time]. I love her so much and just seeing her brings a smile to my face. Literally. I gave her this compliment from the bottom of my heart ~ in retrospect, not because of the gift of the flowers. Just because I wanted to. And I imagine that’s why my friend did this! No thought of anything in return. Just because!)
(SECOND NOTE: Do semi colons belong in that above paragraph instead of commas? Urg. I can’t stand English grammar sometimes!)
I know that I will do all I can to pay this forward – especially since so much good will was paid towards me last summer (and continues to this day).
As I say on Twitter, “Miracles are everywhere! Look for yours.”
